A Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That

My To Be Read Shelf:

Goodreads members have a digital To Be Read shelf where they place titles they want to read soon.

Today I am sharing my physical To Be Read Shelf. It is a collection of books I received and purchased at KissCon in KC last month and a few I won in Goodreads Contests. Some of these are from a favorite author of mine. Others are authors new to me. I'm spending more time writing than reading right now, so I am falling way behind. What's on your TBR shelf?

PSA: If you are interested in free books from established as well as new authors, Goodreads Giveaways are a great way to get free paperback or Kindle versions.

Click on the Browse tab on your Goodreads page. You can select the genre that interests you.

From the drop down menu you can even                                             search by ebook or paperback.
Good Luck!

I am over halfway done with my next book. Yay me! Of course, I will still have to edit before releasing it to the public. I …

April Showers Bring...New Books!

Happy April! 

I hope it feels like spring where you live today. Here in Kansas City, we have just this week started to see the sun and warmer weather in the forecast. I feel like long walks with Nala, baseball games, maybe a track meet, and a convertible car ride.

I should be writing!

My goal is 45,000 words this month. So far I am on track as I write a bit every day or should I say every night as insomnia plagues me.
I have many stories planned for the next year.  Recently though a creative book title entered my mind, so I moved that book to the front of the line. But, my lips are sealed on its title and details. I hope to begin edits by the end of April-you'll hear more about it soon.

For my fans of The Surrogate Series (The Proposal, The Deed, and The Confession) please share with your family and friends that I combined them into one book titled Third Wheel.
Third Wheel is available on retailers at links below. I am also offering a Goodreads Giveaway of the Third Wheel they can …

What's Next?
As I attempted to edit The Confession, another series began haunting my thoughts and dreams. I will now begin creating this series for my readers.  Look to this blog and my social media outlets for announcements on my next book in the coming months.

My Goals for 2018
As I mentioned in the December 29th post, I have a set of items I hope to accomplish in 2018. I have completed two of them already. Great start, right? Now I need to power on to complete the rest.  How are you doing on your own goals for 2018? Remember it is okay to change the list-add t…

Do You Review? I do!

Today's topic is near and dear to my heart.

When you read, do you take a minute or five minutes to write a review on Amazon or Goodreads? It's quick. It's easy. It helps readers. It helps authors.

When I read a book, I try to leave a review on Goodreads and Amazon. Here are some recent reads and reviews I posted. Notice they aren't a mile long. Every little bit helps, but you must do more than just select the stars-write a few words.

I am an 'Indie Author'. This means I am an independent author. I write my stories, I edit or seek my own editor, I publicize my own books-I do it all myself. I don't have a large publishing house doing it for me. (Yet-but it is the goal.)

Royalties on self-published books are very small. Every review can help with a future sale. Every mention to a friend or family member can mean another book is sold. Spread the love and spread the word. 

Many digital books have a hyperlink in the back that takes you directly to the review sites. Do …
